WNC Mission

Provide an opportunity for women to ease the stress of relocation, make new friends, learn about the community they now call home, and become instantly involved in activities of their choice.




President’s Message



Thank you for visiting our website.  If you are new to Las Vegas or in need of some support because of a recent change in circumstances, you’ve come to the right place.

Westside Newcomers Club (WNC) was founded in 1992 by four women who, like you, were new to the valley.   Subsequently, we have grown to over 500 members. 

WNC is strictly a non-profit women’s social organization with “women” and “social” being the operative words.   We provide friendship and support through a wide array of activities.  With over 30 Special Interest Groups, there is something for every taste and temperament.   If you peruse our calendar of events, you will find that we can keep you engaged almost every day of the month.

Once a month, on the second Wednesday, we hold a General Meeting followed by a luncheon and program for our members and guests.  The locations, such as country clubs, casino banquet rooms and distinguished restaurants in the area, are as varied as the entertainment, including local officials and luminaries that only Las Vegas can provide.

I encourage you to attend our New Member Coffee, which is held on the first Wednesday of every month, at 9:15 a.m. at the Grace in the Desert Episcopal Church, in the community room at 2022 Spring Gate Lane, Las Vegas, 89134.  There you will learn specifics about our Club and, most importantly, meet many of our members who could very well come from your hometown.   They will have you signed up for an activity and involved in no time. 

As a member, you will receive a monthly newsletter by e-mail.  It contains all of the tools you need to navigate through our activities for the month, as well as other useful information.   If you decide to join us, you’ll find a membership application on our Meetings page.

Most of us started out exactly where you are now.   Those of us lucky enough to find WNC have been able to acclimate to our new surroundings while having a great time and making many new lasting friendships along the way.

I look forward to meeting you. 

Nancy Ovuka – President



2015 - 2016 Executive Board of Directors
